Jan Schakowsky
Representative (D-Illinois)
CSPAN2 10/29/2013
Schakowsky: I think people have questioned the policies of the NSA. I think the policies that you carry out have certainly been questioned. And they have been carried out by patriots as evidenced by the fact that almost a majority of the Congress actually voted to end the surveillance program
Jan Schakowsky
Representative (D-Illinois)
CSPAN2 10/29/2013
Schakowsky continued: and I am certain that you’re not talking about them as not patriots. The two individuals who wrote, one republican and one democrat, who wrote the USA Patriot Act shortly after 9/11, have now introduced the USA Freedom Act that essentially would repeal many of the aspects and change them, (of the Patriot Act).
Jan Schakowsky
Representative (D-Illinois)
CSPAN2 10/29/2013
Schakowsky: There has been some diminution of our diplomatic relationships across the world naïve or not. Disingenuous even or not. That is just a fact. And it seems to me that now the with the President saying it looks like he’s poised, it says in the New York Times, to order the national security agency to stop
Jan Schakowsky
Representative (D-Illinois)
CSPAN2 10/29/2013
Schakowsky continued: eavesdropping on leaders of American allies. The Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee raised a question that I think is legitimate. An issue that is legitimate. Why did we not know that heads of state were being eavesdropped on, spied on? The reason why it's important is because it is a policy issue that has very broad implications. It could put the United States (in a difficult position.)
Jan Schakowsky
Representative (D-Illinois)
CSPAN2 10/29/2013
Schakowsky: I understand that sources, methods, all of those things. But we are the Intelligence Committee. And we did not -- we didn't know that and now all of us, all of us are dealing with a problem in our international relations. There will be changes. What I heard from you is a robust defense of the status quo. That isn’t necessarily what have I heard in other hearings. i herald -- heard your openness
Jan Schakowsky
Representative (D-Illinois)
CSPAN2 10/29/2013
Schakowsky: (question to Keith Alexander) I have a couple of questions. What about having an official outside of the NSA to provide prior approval of what would be reasonable, articulable suspicion in order query a name and ask for the information?
Jan Schakowsky
Representative (D-Illinois)
CSPAN2 10/29/2013
Schakowsky: Currently the nsa is holding for five years. the business record data many people suggested it's too long. what do you think about shortening the time whether nsa or some other entity hold it? Alexander: Our analysts think somewhere around three years is probably the least that you could do. and so if we did that, it goes back to what congressman said, i think three years makes sense that's what our analysts come up with.
